A HINT TO THE RAILROADS.
If some one doesn't hurry up and
perfect a syetem of wireless telegrsphy
or wireless telephones, or something of
that kind, the railroads will have to put
a limit on the length of freight trains,
and it will not "be possible to put moe
than half a dosen big engines In' a
bunch and string out more than two orjl
inrw nwics oi cars oemna tnem. i lie
problem which confronts the rallroaj
J manager riow is how to enable lh?
trainmen to communicate with , each
other.. It Is no unusual thing now to
see a hundred freight cars on a single
) train stretchinsr out somewhere in the
1 neighborhood of a mile In Jength. With j
head brakeman and the rear one to
communicate with each other without
'the aid of some artificial means.' It
was l announced recently that a road
in this country was about to supply lis
freight .conductors with field glasses
and fit out the head brakeman with a
heliograph outfit, and gi ye the train
men" a. course In wig-wagging. 'The
Railway Age points out the weakness
of this scheme by calling attention to
the act that-' the heliograph and field
glasses would be useless on the.numer-
ous carves which ! are ito be found on

is that In wireless telegraphy lies, it
appear, the only hope of the
railway manager who Is ambitious to

Into one train and thus save the ex-
pense of a few train crews.
The latest census of the Kingdom of
Belgium shows that industries carried
on In the. family give' employment to
about one-sixth of the population. The
census shows also the somewhat sur
prising result that hand manufactures
maintain themselves side by side with
machinery, even -in Industries in which
labor-saving machinery predominates.
The competition of the human hand
with machinery can only be maintain
ed by a utilization of the labor vforce
of a family that does not enter Into, our
American conception of ; economics.
With us. large families live: in "com
parative ldlenes.. While machinery does
the .work, human hands formerly did.
Whatever an otherwise Idle person ac
complishes Is clear gain. The compen
sationmay seem small, but Is really
large when compared with nothing. Of
course the Belgian people are limited
In their home work to a certain line of
industries, but 4hese industries are
more numerous and varied than 'one
would suppose. The census shows that
there are more than 300,000 undertak
ings belonging to small Industrial pur
suits. J This does not include retail
dealers or commercial travelers. In
respect to territory, Tielglum is a very

twelve to thirteen times the number of
people in our state. ,

that are open to our commonwealth.
PERMANENT NATIONAL DEBTS
' ' ' i - . , '
.Mr. O. P. Austin, Chief of the Bureau
of Statistics of the Treasury Depart
ment, says" the debt of the United
States, less the cash in the Treasury
Is at present about two-fifths of -what
It was.' when the Civil War closed, the
per capita debt about eie-stxth and
the per capita Interest about one
twelfth of that of 1865. The reduction
in the per capita debt is the result of
an absolute reduction of the debt and
in part or an Increase in population.
But. the greater decrease In the N per
capita of Interest is due to the ability
of the Government to sell bonds at low
er rates of Interest than the Govern
ment was compelled to pay in 1865,
Mr. Austin also directs public attention
to the fact that the United States is
the only Nation that has m perman
ent interest-bearing debt. The legal
tinder debt only matures at thexpleas
ure of the Government, and all other
obligations are redeemable at fixed
dates, j While other governments re
deem bonds with new issues of bonds.
the policy of the United States ts to
cancel all obligations , as they become
due. It is quite possible that When the
last of the outstanding bonds are paid
the UnUed States will, have no Inter
est-bearing K debt. Mr,Austln , olso
states that the national debts of the
world at the close of the laat century
were ten time's as great as they wete
at the cfose of the precedlnsr centorv
At tne beginning of the Napoleonic
wars the national debts of the-world
amounted approximately to $3,5oo,ft,V
oo, In 1900 they were about $31,000.-

the article following occurs this declar
ation. ,iv V ' '
"If anyboJy Is thinking seriously of

and even he. does not seem to be
thinking aloud. The hotbed of 'extra

ever, may be only a coincidencer Uke-
w-ise, may be a rumor that the ques
tion 'to be or not to be' Is very near to
the Governor's heart Just now, as the

After imputing to Governor Geer the
dlHtlnction of being practically the
only person In the state who wanted

"the subject has sunk almost Into in
nocuous deseutude." and that "the
dim forgetfufness to which the subject
la a prey may be a positive boon." '
But since the Governor has decided
to not call an extra session, the Ore

WHY bO THEY SPEAK!
Some of the Eastern newspapers are
discussing the .reasons why political
candidates- should make long speeches
to small country audiences when their
real object Is to reach afl over .the
state by medium of the great dally
hewsne.pers. r ;., Alluding to' Governor
Odell's compaign, the New York Times
recentlySsald ' $ . ,'
"His real -audience he gets next" day
by means of the newspapers. Why the
delay, and why so much trouble for
both the Governor and the newspapers?
It would be so much easier, for ail con
cerned If he would sit quietly down In
New York, J or even ln Nejjrburg. for
that 'matter.'' and write out his facts and
figures, not as a speech, but as an ar-
tiele'or essay. This, orooerlv slsned.
ilstriubted and printed, would accom

What does Democracy
Here Is a chance for djspule'about the
matter. The best explanatiua Is that it
doea'not stand for much of anything.
Or that it atands for different things
in different secUons of the country
one thing In New Work, for Instance,
and quite another thing lh the Soulh.
The Statesman Is a Republican news-
paper, and It expects to remain in
Republican ranks. We "believe In
fundamental principles of the Republi
can party. But In city affairs, unless
the leaders of the party here take an
active Interest, and unless they , enun
ciate principles and policies that stand
for something more than( the mere de
sire of a few men to secure control of
the paying offices of the municipality,
we believe It will be Useless for them
to oppose themselves to the, citizens'
movement, pledged to economy In city
affairs, and standing upon a record of
economy. " There Is no use to disguise
the fact that at vleast in- this respect
the men now In charge of the city's af
fairs have done well. If the real lead
ers of the Republican party In Salem
decide upon a campaign, let -them
make It upon a platform which says
and means something definite and posi
tive In the way of reform, and put up
men as candidates who ''will carry out
the programme. It Is well to be plain,
and the Statesman tells the Republl-j
cans ot Salem that any other sort of
programme Is doomed to defeat. Any
other kind will not be considered to be
representative of the principles of Re
publicanism. Any other kind will not
be. considered to be binding upon the
membership of the party here, who are
In the majority. Anything short of this
will decide the majoi I ty of Republicans
to vote the nonpartisan ticket.

A Salem lady yesterday questioned
the correctness of the Statesman's
npeinng oi the word Dhoukhobor. It
Is generally spelled ' Ioukhobor. The
Associated Tresa Is spelling it this way
now, though the first dispatches seem
ed to be In doubt. But the Universal
Dictionary calls tbe sect the Dukho
bortni. The writer did not take time
to look the matter up further. Per
haps some of the .Statesman's readers
have some suggestions to offer. They
